Foodie Guide: What and Where to Eat in Marinduque

Go on a food trip around the “Heart of the Philippines”.

One of the best places to eat in Marinduque is Café Mamita, located on the ground floor of the historic Boac Hotel. This homey restaurant, decorated in vintage memorabilia, offers a dose of nostalgia and heartwarming home-cooked dishes prepared with fresh ingredients and love. Their specialties include manakla, a small crustacean that looks like a cross between shrimps and baby lobsters, with just one claw, served with vegetables in coconut milk, sizzling blue marlin and tanigue and one of the best versions of bulalo (beef marrow stew) I’ve ever tasted.
